But luckily, Orbitz, on which I booked the flights, for some odd reason, was offering a refund...not 100%...they needed a little cut...but it was so exciting that cancelling was an option at all
After an early train to JFK, and some bantering with Japan Airlines, we're off to Tokyo. The flight is long and the seats are so tight...I don't think they're really made for the width of US hips...anyway, mine just squeeze in between the armrests...I think they're getting bruised during the flight...and my personal video player, which I am elated to find on the flight, is showing worse films that you'd find on a bus in South America...well, maybe that's going some...but they're bad...and they're mostly in Japanese...go figure. But the stewardesses are so nice and accommodating...and the food is good...and after too many hours playing tetras on the personal video machine, we arrive. This is for one night only....tomorrow we're headed to Bali....Denpasar to be exact. So it's about 2 AM Tokyo time...I'm wide awake (having taken a too long nap at 5 PM upon arrival), so I head the streets to find something to eat
So that's the story...tomorrow is Bali, and after that Java, then Sumatra, Malaysia, Singapore, and back to Tokyo for the final week. Do I know anything about these places? Not a whole lot...but I'm sure Ill learn fast....and one great thing about this new plan...it's not going to be 115 degrees or monsoon season...all is good...
